The Valley of Palm Springs Scottish Rite

Brethren, We had a phenomenal Feast of Tishri event! It was delivered with excellence! Traveling back to 1731, Philadelphia, the seat of Democracy and the early birth of our Great Nation, left a positive and thoughtful mark in our conscience.  It took a great effort to be where we are today as a Nation! The result is a success, and the cornerstone of that success is togetherness, which is the beginning… 


Congratulations to Director of Work, Brother Leonard Kienzle, 32° and his Team for a well-done Presentation! We were honored to have our S.G.I.G., Ill. & MW Frank Loui 33°, PGM, in our Valley and we hope he enjoyed the event!  I’d like to thank our Ill. & MW Stu Wright, 33 °, PGM, for his excellent presentation, introducing our S.G.I.G., and offering a solution to become a successful Valley!

Lastly, my gratitude to all active members for their sincere commitment, by investing their most valuable commodity - their time - to ensure that our Valley becomes a sacred place where we can grow and be enlightened together. Some, living far, being on the road from 1.5 to 2.5 hours to be here and to support the Valley.  It is great Team work to come together, which is a beginning. The key word is together. When everyone is moving together, then success takes care of itself!
